Weraerai (NSW)

LocationNorth side of Gwydir River from Moree to Bingara; northward to Warialda and Gilgil Creek; west to Garah. At Yallaroi; on Macintyre River from Inverell to north of Wallangra. The horde at Blue Nobby (Djinibal) was considered to be a separate tribe by MacPherson. Because of a blunder by Fraser (1892) it has been confused with a different tribe, Ualarai of the Narran River.
